I can't express how impressed I am with these Dunlop tires. As a former Nokian Hakkapeliitta buyer, these Dunlop WinterMaxx tires perform at least as well in snow and ice, and they're priced much better than the premium winter tires out there. They handle well in wet or dry, and have been exceptional on snow & ice where my car would go when others were stuck during this tough winter. I have only 3 months so far on the tires all winter 2013-2014, so long-term wear (not usually a strong point of winter tires) isn't fully known though no excessive wear is evident at this point. I can confidently recommend these winter tires.
